Thank you!
The Virgin of Montserrat ( Mare de Déu de Montserrat or Moreneta) is a statue of the Virgin Mary and infant Christ venerated at the Santa Maria de Montserrat monastery in the Montserrat mountain in Catalonia. It is one of the black Madonnas of Europe, hence its familiar Catalan name, la Moreneta ("The little dark-skinned one"). Believed by some to have been carved in Jerusalem in the early days of the Church, it is more likely a Romanesque sculpture in wood from the late 12th century. On September 11, 1881, Pope Leo XIII declared the virgin of Montserrat patroness of Catalonia (Saint George is another patron saint.)

Notable features are the almost semi-circular first- floor balconies, the metal railings of the other openings and the ornamental ceramic decoration of the wall surfaces.

Together with Palau de la Música Catalana, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

As of December 2009 there are still tours of the hospital being given several times a day.
  29. 29. Mosaic at Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau
  30. 30. The Hospital de Sant Pau is the outstanding example of its type of exceptional interest because of its beauty, size and unique architectural design. In 1892 a Paris banker of Catalan origin, Pau Gil, left a large sum of money in his will for the construction of a hospital in his native city, to be named in honour of his patron saint. The land for this was purchased in 1898 and Domènech i Montaner received the commission to design it.
  31. 31. San Jordi (Saint George) The Palau de la Música Catalana (Palace of Catalan Music) is a concert hall designed in the Catalan modernista style by the architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner, it was built between 1905 and 1908 for the Orfeó Català, a choral society founded in 1891 that was a leading force in the Catalan cultural movement that came to be known as the Renaixença (Catalan Rebirth)
  32. 32. The large sculpture on the corner, by Miquel Blay, is entitled La cançó popular catalana (1909). Catalan song is personified as a graceful maid before a group of male and female figures. Above them is a copy of a silver statuette of St. George in the Palau de la Generalitat de Catalunya chapel Cross of St. George and the inscription
  33. 33. Lamaternitat Thebourgeoisandtheworker
  34. 34. The inspiration of the Palau de la Música CataIana was the concept of the "Orfeo Catalá" that emerged during the Barcelona Universal Exhibition of 1888. This choir for the performance of Catalan music formed part of the overall political movement that developed in these years, with a resurgence of Catalan nationalism. Orfeó Català with the shield of Catalonia
  35. 35. The Palau de la Música Catalana (Palace of Catalan Music) was inaugurated February 9, 1908. In 1997, the Palau de la Música Catalana was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site along with Hospital de Sant Pau. These are two of the finest contributions to Barcelona's architecture by the Catalan art nouveau architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner.
